Random Thoughts--Pick One

Did you ever have one of those days when there was so much news and/or repetition of old stories that you want to either laugh or cry? Or get mad and stomp your feet? Or throw more than a foam brick at the TV or radio? How as a rational person you just turn them off and read the paper which is just as bad, thumb through a book or magazine and finally it's time to go to bed.....

1-Revisit the stimulus package with the observation that at least the Republicans didn't cave this time and allow Obama to just wash his hands like Pilate so he could lay the blame off on someone else.

2-How can capitalism or a market economy or whatever label we use these days survive when the leader of the free world is more concerned with what the rest of the world thinks of him/us is more important than the future of the country itself?

3-Couldn't stipulations on certain methods or constraints by the lender (us) be considered the collateral we should get for the money they get? Bonuses?

4-I've decided watching a Jay Leno monologue haranguing George W is self-inflicted pain so I'll forego that since he just can't seem to get over it.

5-One more comment about Geithner: when did we stop getting character references when we hired someone?

6-Some of the topics covered weeks ago on this blog seem to be in the news these days. Should I reprint or just give the date so you can retrieve them. Case in point: the Mexican drug/government/border/gang problems.

See ya--

God bless and rest well.

Actually... We are so bombarded daily, it is hard to keep up.. I suppose that could be the plan..

Always on our heels makes it hard to strike back.
